'Slacker' is all one big collection of scenes involving different people just going about their day. It has a natural flow. Each new person that enters the frame hands it off to the next, and so on. Many situations are a bit of a bore, sometimes following in succession. But the weird, eccentric, and funny portions punctuate frequently enough. Interesting film.

Obwohl der Film 1991 in Austin spielt, sieht das Szenario so aus wie ein ganz normaler Tag heute in Berlin Neukölln. Linklater zeigt eine Parallelwelt, in welcher der Kaffee immer nachgefüllt wird und sich die Protagonisten wundern, dass es überhaupt noch ein anderes Leben gibt ausserhalb des eigenem. Linklater beobachtet, hört auch zu, will …
